I saw this over at figures.com, and thought it was kinda funny. They have some pics of a possible upcoming line of futuristic 1:18 military figures from bbi. I notice they look a lot like some SW characters.

Check it out for yourself:

Mace? (http://69.93.119.2/photo/1/showphoto.php?photo=19161&sort=1&cat=1817&page=3)

Luke? (http://69.93.119.2/photo/1/showphoto.php?photo=19152&sort=1&cat=1817&page=4)

Anakin? (http://69.93.119.2/photo/1/showphoto.php?photo=19147&sort=1&cat=1817&page=4)

Snowtrooper? (http://69.93.119.2/photo/1/showphoto.php?photo=19119&sort=1&cat=1817&page=5)

I actually like the Snowtrooper, and would probably buy one (or a few) if I saw 'em in a store.

Looks like they just kitbashed Star Wars figures to use as their 'display samples'. It's a commen thing in the toy industry. The final versions will look nothing like those chop shop customs. :)

JJB is prolly right. The "Luke" has the OTC Dagobah Luke's arms.

You sure these aren't really Star Wars figures. Remember they did give us Cold Weather Obi-Wan.:stupid:
